Steve Jobs was to the computer industry what Bill Graham was to the concert business. Both were abrasive, unapologetically brilliant visionaries that rewrote the rules of their businesses. The doors of perception for both were shaped by 60's idealism while the roads they drove to success were paved with streamline capitalism. A half million people paid homage to Graham at a wake after his death, as those grieving Jobs laid apples at the gates of his empire these past weeks. We say thanks to both.
